Certification and Certification

The past decade has seen a proliferation of certification programmes. Some are better and some are ****.

There as a time when I had friends who sought out any and every certificate they can collect. I think there is a slowing down. One reason is the economic recession that makes people and employers more careful here they put their money. Another is the realisation that jobs depend on more substation life things than just certificates.

Certificates are still useful. But you better be good in the subject that you are certified in. I think the days of getting jobs based on certificates of subject matter that one has no knowledge beyond the exams is largely over. And that’s a good thing, for employers and also for genuine training providers and certification bodies’ reputation.

Hmmm….. do you smell a fish?

About Ed Simon

This is my user name as Editor of this blog. Some site visitors may already be acquainted with the different areas of my interest. I am uncertain how I should classify myself. I have lived studied and worked in Malaysia and in the UK for long periods. I have also travelled to many other countries for both work, pleasure, and just "wandering". I leave the postings to tell about my areas of work and interest, so as not to bore you with a lengthy (and probably embellished :-) recount of my triumphs and tribulations.
